Today I was reminded of the power of honest, hard work. I was running errands with my uncle today, and he took me to his farm. After grabbing a few things, he walked me around and showed me all his animals he was raising, and let me tell you that it was astounding.
He showed me his chickens that he was raising to sell, his goats and pigs, turkeys, cows, rabbits, and everything of the sort. It was all completely captivating to me.
The work that is involved in not only maintaining a farm and raising animals, but he also has an apple orchard with over 200 trees, a small business that him and his wife run, and does outstanding carpentry work.
After talking to him about his work and overall how busy he is, I was completely blown away. Just the amount of time and effort involved in everything he does is crazy and reminded of an amazing lesson; WORKING HARD IN EVERYTHING YOU DO.
At the end of the day, you can look back on your work and be proud of what you’ve accomplished. Far too many people don’t take pride in their work nowadays, and it’s something sets you miles apart from the “normal” crowd.
Now, as promised, here’s a picture of an adorable baby goat that was born not too long ago at my uncle’s farm. He’s kind of hard to see, but he’s there! Enjoy!
